The Folk Dance Ensemble "PROMYKI" is a group representing Wieliszew Com-mune, Mazovian province, Legionowski county in Poland. The ensemble cultivates Polish dances, songs and traditional customs as well as Polish national dances. It was established in the autumn 1998 and functions attached to the local administration of a commune council.

The ensemble consists of more than hundred young dancers. Members of the ensemble take an active part in National Tournaments of Polish National Dances. Our dancers won the events organized in Warsaw, Lodz, Poznan, Torun, Olsztyn and other cities in Poland. One of our dancing couples has got the actual champion title in Polish National Dances.

The repertoire of the group covers not only traditional songs and dances from Zywiec, Slask, Lublin, Kraków, Warszawa and Kaszuby regions but also Polish national dances such as polonez, krakowiak, kujawiak, mazur and oberek. Every dance from our repertoire is presented to the audience by dancers dressed in traditional costumes from certain regions. In spite of dances the ensemble has got many folk songs in its repertoire.

In 2004 we represented our country - Poland during Festival Nationale dei Giovani in Ferriere, Italy. The group performed eight well-applauded shows. In 2005 we were hosted by International County Wandering Festival in Szeged, Hungary; in 2006 we represented Poland during Musical Feasts Euro Folk 2006 in Bulgaria (Grand Prix of the Festival).
In 2007 we participated in 48. Aksehir International Folklore Festival in Turkey ( Harman Folk Festival ) and Saint Luigi Tissi Folklore Festival on Sardinia, Italy. Everywhere we were always warmly welcomed. All the audience and the Organizers underlined the high, professional level of performance and the mastery of presentation.

In 2009 we would like to present Polish songs and dances, to International Folklore Festival in audience. We are interested in the participation in the Festival organized by you. Possibility of representing Poland in your country would be a meaning distinction and great honour for us. We also kindly request - if such a possibility exists - that you pass on to us mailing addresses of folklore festivals organized in your neighborhood or contact us directly with the institutions able to help us in this issue.

We would very much appreciate your assistance in establishing artistic contacts with teenage groups presenting folklore of your country. We are open for all possible suggestions and forms of cooperation. Every kind of help is really important for us as it contributes to the recognition of different cultures by our dancers and can open new, huge possibilities for our ensemble.
